Glenn Beck Urges GOP Voters to Back Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz, who trails only Donald Trump in the race for the Republican presidential nomination, has received the endorsement of Glenn Beck.

The conservative talk-show host, who has never before supported a candidate in the primaries, appeared with the Texas senator at a campaign event in Iowa on Saturday. “I’m taking a very big risk here and gambling on it, but this is how much I believe in Ted Cruz,” he told the crowd.

As Beck handed the candidate a compass once owned by George Washington, he said: “I’d like you to hold onto that, to make sure your compass is square and you stay true.”

According to The Hill, the political commentator explained that he backing Cruz because no other GOP White House hopeful has a chance of beating Trump in Monday night’s Iowa caucuses.

“I like Marco Rubio. I’ve had real problems with his policies, especially on the NSA, but I like him; he’s a decent man,” Beck said. “Ben Carson – really good, decent, honorable, God-fearing man. I just don’t think he’s ready. I wish he was, but I don’t think he’s ready. Rand Paul, strong on the Constitution and a good guy, but I will tell you this: Those guys aren’t going to win Iowa. They might win down the road; they're not going to win Iowa.”

Beck added: “If Donald Trump wins, it’s going to be a snowball to hell. … (He) has said he hasn’t done anything in his life that actually makes him feel like he should ask forgiveness from God. The hubris of that is astonishing, as if for the last eight years we have watched a narcissist in the Oval Office and it has meant nothing to us. … It’s up to him to ask God’s forgiveness, but I would like to suggest to you that the man owes America an apology, and he should ask conservatives for forgiveness for supporting billions of dollars of bailouts, for pulling for the nationalization of our banks.”
